I began to see Dr. Zang for my neck after an unsuccessful round of physical therapy at another practice. Dr. Zang was able to quickly address my neck and back concerns and developed an effective exercise program for me to use. After seeing Dr. Zang for several sessions, I was symptom free and no longer having pain in my neck and back. Dr. Zang gave me a home exercise program and exercises to relieve symptoms if they flair up. Without Dr. Zang’s professional abilities, I am sure I would still be having issues today. – Alison
Dr. Andrew Zang was recommended to me a few years ago by a former patient. At the time, I was suffering from excruciating nerve pain radiating down my arm from a pinched nerve in my neck. I tried several types of treatment, including: heat, ice, therapeutic massage, chiropractic treatment, and narcotic pain relievers. Nothing worked. Neither an X-ray nor an MRI provided any definitive diagnosis. However, after my first treatment with Dr. Zang, I got immediate relief that same night. Within a few weeks of treatment, my neck and arm were pain free. – Nancy
We offer the most up-to-date evidenced based patient centered interventions. We utilize a combination of active and passive interventions seeking to help you achieve your functional goals.

Physical therapy is often the best conservative treatment for musculoskeletal pains. If you have an issue, do not wait to seek care. Early treatment often results in quicker recovery
These hands-on interventions are delivered by the skilled physical therapist to the patient. This term is rather general in the sense it encompasses a great many possible techniques. It is impossible to name or describe all of them to you here.
Many may claim to be experts in sports rehab or performance, but what really are their credentials? Physical Therapists are the leaders in musculoskeletal healthcare and some but not all understand how to blend the rehab from injury into sports performance. Do you want to be working out in a group doing a general plan or one that is individually tailored to you? Are you looking for someone who understands the rigors of athletics and the pressure to perform?
Your search for a provider is over, at Zang Physical Therapy you will be treated by someone who not only has the skill set, but also competed at a D-I level. I understand what it is like to be injured and working through the rehabilitation process. It can be an arduous task, but with the help of a good team, I was able to return at a high level. I have treated sporting individuals from little league to professional athletes.
My goal is to work with the patient to minimize their time lost to sport based upon their specific injury. We then work together to set, achieve, and exceed your sports performance goals. Utilization of video technology to learn why injury may have happened and/or learn where to improve assists in the process of maximizing the athletes potential.
Implementation of skilled interventions to assist those with neurological conditions or disorders such as: stroke, parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, guillen barre, and spinal cord injuries among others.
When necessary, inclusion of professions such as an orthotist or prosthesis may be included in the overall care process.
This term is part of the new era of medicine. The goal of medicine is to attempt to treat the patient more holistically, which includes educating the patient on ways to better health. This process takes on the form of post-therapy wellness programs, nutrition counseling, etc.
At Zang Physical Therapy, our goal is to provide the patient the necessary tools to be able to manage their injury/condition AND assist with a patient’s general health/wellness goals. This part is always optional and only for the benefit of the patient.
